I LOVE cilantro! Not only does it taste awesome and add freshness to any dish, but it's super nutritious. It's full of antioxidants and is great for detoxing the body of heavy metals such as cadmium, mercury and aluminum! So I try to get lots of cilantro into my diet. Check out my post with 33 Amazing Ways to Use Cilantro!

What's your favorite way to use cilantro? http://ow.ly/xihAI

This Chocolate Joy Hemp Shake from Good Girl Gone Green looks like it would completely hit the spot right now. I have a couple of requirements for healthy smoothies. One is that they have some greens in them. Another is that they have some sort of superfood boost! This smoothie accomplishes both of those things! Hemp seeds are an awesome source of protein, Vitamin E and fatty acids in the proper 3:6 ratio, which is super important! I think I'll try this one for an afternoon snack!

I also love to sprinkle hemp seeds on salads! How do you like to use hemp seeds? http://ow.ly/xbl97

The first pregnancy go-round, I was moderately crunchy. This time, I'm even more crunchy, which means that I spend a great deal of time and effort researching and educating myself on standard practices with regards to labor, delivery and care of the newborn. As as OB nurse, I only ever saw one side of the Vitamin K debate, which really was never even a debate in my profession. You just do it. However, there are many people who go a different route with regards to this routine shot given to newborns. This is part 2 of Kristen from Mix Wellness's post on the Vitamin K controversy. If you are expecting or plan to be in the future, it's definitely worth the read. I like this post for a couple of reasons. First, Kristen is also an RN (it's so nice to know there are other crunchy RNs out there), and second, although she opted out of the vitamin K shot, she also provides information in favor of the shot so that you can be informed on both sides. Give it a read.

Did you give your children the Vitamin K shot? Or did you opt out? http://ow.ly/x8y6b

Today's generation of children are often referred to as the allergy generation. Why? Because about 1 in 12 children has a food allergy. Why is that number so high? Why didn't we have this problem when our grandparents were children? Good questions right? I thought so. Kula Mama has a great post with 10 reasons why food allergy rates in children have grown exponentially!

Do your children have food allergies? If so, to what? http://ow.ly/x5N8L

Confession time. I've been a hardcore coffee drinker since the age of twelve. I dabbled before that (yes my grandmother used to give me coffee and milk when I was 2...I can't believe my mother didn't skin her alive), but regularly since I was twelve. That's a lot of years of coffee drinking. For a long time I put those nasty pre-made processed creamers that turn a totally healthy beverage into a chemical filled cup of cancer. Now, I either drink it black, or I add in some of these superfood ingredients that make it even better! Check out how you can make your coffee super charged from Kula Mama! http://ow.ly/x5Mt0
